Cartoon showing George Fisher in a top hat and formal suit, ringing a hand-bell; to the left, Julius Vogel creeps away into the darkness, dropping a bag marked Public money behind him; on the right, Justice approaches, carrying her scales and wearing a band marked Retrenchment. She is bringing shafts of light with her and illuminating George Fisher. Below is a four-line verse 'Ring out a slowly dying cause, And ancient forms of party strife, Ring in the nobler modes of life; with sweeter manners, purer laws'
